Future Husband complained I made too many sweets last weekend and not enough savory items.  So this weekend I made him some pizza bites since he really loves pizza.

I originally was going to make them look like Totino’s pizza bites. But then I saw a recipe on Annie’s Eats, shaping them into balls and baking them together in a pie pan.  The idea of pulling apart pizza ball bites was really appealing.

One of these days I’ll try making my own pizza dough, but for these, I used premade Pillsbury pizza dough. (Does anyone else hate opening the “easy” Pillsbury dough cans like me? I always make Future Husband open them for me.) I took chunks of dough, flattened it, and then added some cheese and bites of pepperoni. Then I sealed the balls up and placed them into a pie dish.

These bites taste really good dipped in a side of marinara sauce. They were so easy to make.

Ingredients:

  • 1 can Pillsbury pizza dough
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • About 14 slices pepperoni cut into small pieces
  • For topping: Olive oil Italian seasoning

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Lightly grease a 9-inch pie plate.

  2. Divide the pizza dough into about 14 roughly equal sized pieces. Take one of the dough pieces, flatten it, and put shredded cheese and some pepperoni in the middle. Pull the edges of the dough around the fillings and pinch closed. Form into a ball and place seam-side down in the baking dish. Repeat with the remaining dough pieces.
  3. Lightly brush the tops of the dough balls with olive oil. Sprinkle with Italian seasoning. Bake for 20 minutes, or until the tops are golden brown. Serve warm, with marina sauce.
